    Using different time zones in NT8

    Hi Patrick,

    I have a quite similar case regarding the usage of different time zone in NT8. My database has been collected using CET time zone (UTC+1 during winter season / UTC+2 during summer season).

    I tried to change the time zone of NT8 to UTC but the chart does not change which I interpret in the way, that NT8 always charts the data as they are stored on the database. The changed time zone changes the EOD break and the trading hours (sessions) but not the chart, i.e. the time stamps on the x-axis itself.

    Can I somehow get a chart using UTC time zone if my database has been stored using CET time zone?
    Or more general: How can I chart data in a different time zone than the stored data?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Bests,
    Joerg

    I've moved your post to the NinjaTrader 8 forums since it is regarding NinjaTrader 8.

    If you change your NinjaTrader timezone, after restarting the platform, you also need to right-click on your charts and select 'reload all historical data' so that historical data is downloaded in the new time zone.

      Hi Patrick,

      many thanks for your fast answer. Do I understand right, that the data cannot be charted in a different time zone that the time stamps used in the database?
      My problem is, that I have more historical data in the database than my data provider allows to download. Therefore I am not able to load the database again in a different timezone.

        Hello Joerg,

        This is correct. The historical data is timestamped with your local timestamp when downloaded and stored. It is not possible to display historical data in a different time zone so it must be re-downloaded if the time zone is changed.
